Report: AEIAR Conference : FUTURE LAND USE OF RURAL AND PERI-URBAN AREAS

September 16th, 2016
AEIAR

The European Association for Rural Development Institutions dscn0950(AEIAR) celebrated its 50th anniversary with an event on 7 and 8 September 2016 in Brussels. In total about 60 participants from AEIAR member organizations and EU level actors from 12 different member states discussed the current situation of European land use. Together they looked forward to future ways of dealing with increasing land concentration, calling for a European approach.

The AEIAR’s anniversary event took stock of the evolution of European agricultural structures. Participants exchanged experiences on land management tools implemented by different EU countries, specifically those tools that help regulate land markets. Michel Baylac, president of AEIAR explains: “Our members are all working towards a common goal, but sometimes under different national laws and with different tools. AEIAR offers a political voice that can help to harmonise the rules in the land market economy at European level.”
